    Off Topic.....KOSS

    Koss hasn't even an opening trade yet after almost 2 1/2 hrs of trading. 22,000 shares have traded hands so far this week. It's a real slow mover. It's been basing for over 2 1/2 years with huge insider ownership.

    They are in Walmart and they are still innovative. They recently introduced WI-FI enabled phones. They are the oldest maker of stereo headphones for the consumer. Now that is a brand that could be leveraged.

    They pay a 4.9% dividend. The ex-div date is Sept. 26th.

    I own a little KOSS. It's like buying an option with no expiration plus I'll get the annual report. Right now 400 shares are offered at $4.90.

    • There are very, very few longs above water in SKUL.

      On the other hand, KOSS isn't some fly-by-night, flash-in-the-pan business. They pass their earnings along to shareholders in form of a 4.9% dividend. Since they are qualified dividends there is no income tax on the earnings for most people.

      Also, with an accumulation base 2_1/2 years along, KOSS's stock price will explode one of these days.

      At the very least, you should do yourself a favor and buy 1 share of KOSS for every 10 speculative shares of SKUL. In terms of dollars that would be only $1 invested in KOSS to every $26 speculated in SKUL.

    • OP,

      Koss has been around forever. My first pair of headphones in the 70's were Koss. They are pretty plain Jane and IMO targeted at the home stereo crowd (which as you can imagine has dwindle with the invention of MP3 players, the iPod and smart phones that have the capability of storing music.

      Good old brand...but I don't see the innovation and movement into the emerging markets like SKUL and others have.

      So the growth is limited there as of what I see...


      Just saying

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Mike, oh please, you are so uniformed about the competition. KOSS has 99 different product offerings and of course targeted at modern devices.

        Look at their website by the same name dotcom.

        Koss is a true on the Striva tab at their website to learn about the future. Is Skullcandy prepared for it? No.

        I can't begin to tell you how lame Skullcandy is in regards to innovation......replaceable panels for Aviators.....give me a break.
